"Deuce" Style Hood Straps
$199.00

Here's a new style hood strap, designed just for you Deuce owners-or anybody running a '32 hood. It was designed with the assistance of a '32 owner that wanted to be able to run just a hood top part time to show off the engine, but he didn't want to be drilling holes or making modifications to ANYTHING. So, I designed a set of easy on/easy off Shorty Hood Straps, just for Deuce hoods. To install, all you need to do is pull the hinge pin, (or rod) out, take off the side panels, install the Shorty Straps onto the hinge rod, (see pics) set it back on the car. The top of the straps mount to the hinge rod, and the bottom of the straps mount to the original, stock spring loaded hood latches-no holes to drill, nothing to modify! When you want to put the side back on the hood, you can do so easily. And, they are infinitely adjustable, so they will be nice and tight, with just the tension from the stock hood latches! As with all our hood straps, they are made of 1 1/4" wide high quality, heavy harness type leather, with stainless steel hardware, and machine set nickel rivets. These are available in Black, Natural Russet, 50 Year Old Black, (with optional Acrylic Saddlemakers Clearcoat) and our new colors, Mellow Tan and Dark Brown. These two new colors have a bit of a patina to them, kind of an old, mellow looking finish, and they cost a bit more, as they're hand applied and finished.   As with most of our hood straps, these are made to order, so please allow 3-5 days for production time proir to shipping.

 

NOTE:  These are designed to fit a STOCK '32 FORD ONLY.  They are not designed to work with any other make, model or year. 

 

The optional Actylic Saddlemakers Clearcoat permanently protects the straps against damage from UV or wet weather.  We recommend this option for the NATURAL RUSSET, BLACK & 50 YEAR OLD BLACK straps, as they are essentially "unfinished" leathers.  Without this clearcoat finish, they should be regularly  treated with "Neatsfoot Oil" or other good quality boot oil  for longer service life.  Mellow Tan and Dark Brown have the Saddlmakers Acrylic Clearcoat already. 

NOTE:  50 YEAR OLD BLACK IS BACK! 

It's replacment, "Distressed Black", a much less "beat up" looking leather, is still available, too!  It still looks old, just not as old.  It is a black finish, with a mottled, slightly worn look.  Call for a sample. 

NOW, YOU'VE GOT 2 DISTRESSED, VINTAGE LOOKING LEATHERS TO CHOOSE FROM!!

"Why?" Hood Straps
$199.00

Here's set of shorty hood straps that are designed for use with "Lakester Style" headers that restrict the ability to mount standard Shorty Hood Straps. They are designed to use a single lower mount, and a double mount on the hood top. These straps should only be used where there is sufficiant clearance from the headers such that the leather will not be so close to the headers as to be burned, or otherwise damaged. They are infinitely adjustable from about 17" to about 22" from lower mount to hood top mount. Like all our hood straps, these are made from heavy harness type leather, with stainless steel hardware, and machine set nickel rivets. Avaiable in Black, Natural Russet, 50 Year Old Black, and in our hand dyed and finished Mellow Tan, and Dark Brown for an additional charge.   As with most of our hood straps, these are made to order, so please allow 3-5 days production time proir to shipping.

The optional Actylic Saddlemakers Clearcoat permanently protects the straps against damage from UV or wet weather.  We recommend this option for the NATURAL RUSSET, BLACK & 50 YEAR OLD BLACK straps, as they are essentially "unfinished" leathers.  Without this clearcoat finish, they should be regularly  treated with "Neatsfoot Oil" or other good quality boot oil  for longer service life. Mellow Tan and Dark Brown have the Saddlmakers Acrylic Clearcoat already.

The optional Actylic Saddlemakers Clearcoat permanently protects the straps against damage from UV or wet weather.  We recommend this option for the NATURAL RUSSET, BLACK & 50 YEAR OLD BLACK straps, as they are essentially "unfinished" leathers.  Without this clearcoat finish, they should be regularly  treated with "Neatsfoot Oil" or other good quality boot oil  for longer service life. Mellow Tan and Dark Brown have the Saddlmakers Acrylic Clearcoat already.

NOTE: When ordering, please be sure to tell us what year, and model of hood you are running.  We have dimensions for most Ford Models from about 1910- 1937.   If you don't know what year your hood is, then please give us your hood measurements!   Input these dimensions in the "comments" section at our checkout page. This will help us make your straps to exactly fit your application.  We'll need the distance from the hood top edge to the frame rail, at both the front and rear of the hood, taken about 4 to 6 inches in from the ends. We will build in enough adjustment so that your straps will fit properly, so give us the exact dimensions and we'll take it from there.  Since most of our hood straps are custom made to order, they may take a few days to produce, so please allow time for this.  Even with custom orders, we usually ship within 2-5 days of receiving the order.  If you have questions or aren't sure of what size you need, call us, we are happy to walk you through the measuring process!

Show Grade Shorty Style Hood Straps
$399.00
These “Show Grade Shorty Style Hood Straps” aren’t for everybody, or for every build, but if you’re looking for a set of hood straps that will fit perfectly on that show winning build, this is the set!

We all know the difference between a show winner and all the rest, right? It’s all in the details…The regular Shorty Style hood straps we make are fantastic, they're impossible to beat for those running only a hood top. They work properly, look outstanding and would be fine for 99% of the Hot Rods being built. But for that 1% of you that have to have the finest, here they are. What’s so special about them, how do they differ from all the rest? Here’s the list:

- All the Stainless Steel hardware has been carefully selected for the best castings, then cut and polished to a mirror like shine-about 5 hours of polishing goes into each set.

- The 1.25” leather straps are carefully selected for the best leather, then split down the center, and the two finished sides are glued back to back, so there is a nice finished side on both the front & the back of the straps.

- The two sides are then stitched together, and using an old saddle makers trick, the stitch is set down into a small groove, so the thread is countersunk into the leather to avoid wear.

- The edges of the straps are rounded over using a “French edger”, then burnished smooth with a bone burnishing tool.

- The straps are then dyed the color of your choice 3 times, including the backs and edges.

- The edges are then burnished smooth again.

- The straps are then clear coated, 4 coats, with an acrylic saddle makers clear that protects them from UV damage and water damage, yet still allows the character of the leather to show through. They are then hand buffed to a mellow shine.

-They are then carefully hand assembled with steel double cap rivets that have a polished nickel finish.

That's it, one set of Show Grade Shorty Hood Straps! These “SHOW GRADE SHORTY STYLE HOOD STRAPS” aren’t for everybody, or for every build, but if you’re looking for a set of hood straps that will fit perfectly on that show winning build, or you simply have to have the BEST, this is the set! And, they are available in virtually ANY color, just name the color you want, and we'll supply you with samples and we'll go from there. Learn More

Stainless Steel Hardware Set for Hood Straps
$16.00

This is a set of 8, high quality, Stainless Steel Oval Head Machine Screws, Fender Washers, and Special Nylon Locknuts, perfectly sized to mount the upper SS Mounting Brackets to the hood for our SSHS-4 Shorty Style Hood Straps, or for mounting our Stainless Steel Guide Loops for the Deluxe Style Hood Straps.  These can also be used for the lower mounting brackets, if the frame is not boxed, or there is full access to the backside of the mounting location. Fender Washers are a much larger diameter than normal washers, and are designed for use on sheet metal.   These are an Oval Head Machine Screw, #10/24 thread x .75" in length.

We also sell a set of 8 Oval Head Stainless Steel mounting Screws seperately, (No Fender Washers or Nylon Locknuts), and these can be used to mount the lower brackets, but you will need to add either nutserts, weld in nut plates to the backside of the frame, or have enough material thickness on the frame to drill and tap the holes for the lower mounting brackets.
